Falcons place Chris Cooper on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Atlanta Falcons announced Sunday that they have placed safety Chris Cooper on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Falcons now have three players on the reserve/COVID-19 list:

  • Jamal Carter
  • Keith Smith
  • Chris Cooper

Due to league policy pertaining to COVID-19, NFL teams are only allowed to comment on a player's roster status and may not disclose whether or not a player is in quarantine or tested positive. Atlanta's veteran players began their five-day initial testing phase Tuesday morning. Rookies began an initial five-day testing phase back on July 21, and they have been undergoing daily tests as part of the NFL's COVID-19 testing protocol.

Cooper, 26, spent the entire 2019 season on the Falcons' roster. During his rookie season, Cooper had stints with the Colts and Bengals after a prolific career at Stony Brook University.
